It must be time to decorate my house in autumn decor!
I made a few autumny decorations last year, but not nearly enough. Luckily, every crafty blogger out there is whipping out their best fall crafts, so I have been filing some projects away.
This project is just such a project!
Inspired by the Autumn Table Runner at Make It and Love It, I decided to make a leaf-bordered cover for my wine barrel top lazy susan!
I started by going to Joann's for some fall leaves. I kind of expected to be able to find a bag of them, but to no avail, so I bought the ones attached to stems and peeled them all off.
I then cut a circle of brown fabric to be just smaller than the lazy susan.
Next, I began pinning on my leaves.
I went around the circle first with some leaves sporadically placed, and then filled in the holes. I didn't want them to look like they had a specific order, so I made sure to mix up the sizes and layers.
Once it was all pinned, I just ran it through the sewing machine to sew all the leaves down!
It was so easy to do, and looks great on my table!
